Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a post that appeared here and is reposted with permission. No one exposes the lies the Planned Parenthood spews better and more adeptly than Mr. Bomberger.
Somehow the “My Body My Choice” crowd doesn’t understand the difference between an elective “choice” and essential healthcare. Likewise, federal judges who defend the supremely wrong Roe v. Wade decision also confuse the difference between constitutional and unconstitutional.
If abortion is “essential healthcare” then slavery was “essential job care.”
Pandemics don’t change a lie. …
Why is Planned Parenthood so religiously devoted to abortion? It’s not merely some fake feminist principle. It’s profit. Despite serving hundreds of thousands less clients and delivering over a million less critical medical services than ten years ago, Planned Parenthood’s profits [“excess of revenue over expenses”] skyrocketed 600%. Six hundred percent.
In 2009, the abortion giant generated $18.5 million in profit. In 2018, their haul was $111 million. Ten years ago, they were reportedly serving 3.0 million clients. In 2018, that number has drastically fallen by 600,000 individuals to 2.4 million. (See the factsheet here.)
Breast cancer exams (which are essential) plummeted from 830,312 to 265,028 between 2009 and 2018; PAP tests plunged from 904,820 to 255,682 in the same time period at Planned Parenthood. That’s a massive drop of 68% and 72% respectively. Prenatal care barely even exists, falling 76% to a mere 9,798 services or less than 0.1% of Planned Parenthood’s total services.
Considering the majority of women become mothers by the age of 44—86% to be exact—how does a self-proclaimed “leading women’s healthcare provider” provide so little for mothers?
Planned Parenthood can hide behind the facade of “abortion is essential healthcare” all they want. Abortion is essential revenue. Without it, they’d fold. It’s why they gave up Title-X funding. The new president of Planned Parenthood made it abundantly clear in a CBS interview that the federation was fully devoted to abortion.
In response to being asked if they would “change their abortion model to comply with Title X regs,” Planned Parenthood president Alexis McGill-Johnson stated emphatically: “Absolutely not. I was on the Board when we voted to ensure that abortion was one of our core services that every center affiliated with Planned Parenthood would provide.”
Despite providing far less healthcare and having an astonishing number of fewer clients, Planned Parenthood alarmingly increased their forced taxpayer-funding from $487 million in 2009 to $617 million in 2018. And guess which “service” didn’t decrease? The violence of abortion, of course. In that ten year time period, Planned Parenthood upped the number of abortions committed from 331,796 to their highest number to date: 345,672 precious human lives wiped out.
They’re not going to let a pandemic stop them from profiting.
Abortion activists have fully relied on lies for decades while euphemisms mask the violence they advocate.
“Essential healthcare” is essentially the new “choice.”
And they’ll keep playing semantics while an industry profits from any crisis, whether global or individual.
